  1. Hi,
    First off i'm really no good at anything like this so don't expect me to know all the computer jargon etc. :eek:

    I just recently bought a GeForce 8600 GT PCI-E when I inserted it into my computer
    (which is an Intel Dimension 4700 with no upgrades done to it since bought new) and turned the computer on the light on the monitor went orange as thought the computer was off but the screen was on.

    I've been reading around other threads and the specs for this computer should be able to comfortably run the GeForce 8600 and i'm completely stumped after spending a few hours fiddling. The computer runs fine on the old graphics card.

    If you need any information about the computer etc. please ask and i'll try to help all though don't count on me :eek:
